Visual Facilitating heißt ein Trendthema, das aus den USA nach Europa herüberschwappt: Mit einfachen Skizzen werden Dialoge, Ideen und komplexe Sachverhalte in Echtzeit visualisiert. Dies ist der erste umfassende Praxisratgeber für Visual Facilitating im deutschen Sprachraum. Anschaulich zeigt der Autor, wie und in welchen Bereichen sich diese visuelle Sprache in der Praxis anwenden lässt. Zahlreiche praktische Zeichenanleitungen machen die Methode für jedermann umsetzbar. Jeder kann Ideen, Prozesse und abstrakte Zusammenhänge in Meetings, Trainings oder Präsentationen von Hand sichtbar machen! Visual Facilitating ist kein lustiges Add-on zur Auflockerung von Konferenzen, sondern macht komplizierte Zusammenhänge begreifbar. Übrigens: Was ist "UZMO"? Das ist der Code, mit dem jeder aus vier Buchstaben ruckzuck eine wirkungsvolle Glühbirne zeichnen kann. Ganz ohne Kunstausbildung. Eben typisch Visual Facilitating.

The acclaimed bestseller about visual problem solving-now bigger and better "There is no more powerful way to prove that we know something well than to draw a simple picture of it. And there is no more powerful way to see hidden solutions than to pick up a pen and draw out the pieces of our problem." So writes Dan Roam in The Back of the Napkin, the international bestseller that proves that a simple drawing on a humble napkin can be more powerful than the slickest PowerPoint presentation. Drawing on twenty years of experience and the latest discoveries in vision science, Roam teaches readers how to clarify any problem or sell any idea using a simple set of tools. He reveals that everyone is born with a talent for visual thinking, even those who swear they can't draw. And he shows how thinking with pictures can help you discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and dramatically improve your ability to share your insights. Take Herb Kelleher and Rollin King, who figured out how to beat the traditional hub-and-spoke airlines with a bar napkin and a pen. Three dots to represent Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Three arrows to show direct flights. Problem solved, and the picture made it easy to sell Southwest Airlines to investors and customers.

Ever been to so many meetings that you couldn't get your work done? Ever fallen asleep during a bulletpoint presentation? Ever watched the news and ended up knowing less? Welcome to the land of Blah Blah Blah. The Problem: We talk so much that we don't think very well. Powerful as words are, we fool ourselves when we think our words alone can detect, describe, and defuse the multifaceted problems of today. They can't-and that's bad, because words have become our default thinking tool. The Solution: This book offers a way out of blah-blah-blah. It's called "Vivid Thinking." In Dan Roam's first acclaimed book, The Back of the Napkin, he taught readers how to solve problems and sell ideas by drawing simple pictures. Now he proves that Vivid Thinking is even more powerful. This technique combines our verbal and visual minds so that we can think and learn more quickly, teach and inspire our colleagues, and enjoy and share ideas in a whole new way. The Destination: No more blah-blah-blah. Through Vivid Thinking, we can make the most complicated subjects suddenly crystal clear. Whether trying to understand a Harvard Business School class, or what went down in the Conan versus Leno battle for late-night TV, or what Einstein thought about relativity, Vivid Thinking provides a way to clarify anything. Through dozens of guided examples, Roam proves that anyone can apply this systematic approach, from leftbrain types who hate to draw to right-brainers who hate to write. This isn't just a book about improving communications, presentations, and ideation; it's about removing the blah-blah- blah from your life for good.

Kaizen Kanban

Author: Fabrice Bouchereau
Publisher: ASQ Quality Press
ISBN: 9780873899376
Release Date: 2016-07-21
Genre: Business & Economics

Kaizen Kanban is a guide to creating prioritized project pipelines and setting up improvement boards to maximize business success through the execution of continuous improvement projects. It introduces to the “Faster and Better” visual facilitation approach that enables you to seamlessly leverage and combine fundamental tools in order to identify improvement opportunities for entire value streams, compile them in a prioritized project pipeline, and set up improvement display boards, or “kaizen kanbans,” linked to key business objectives. Kaizen kanbans follow the same principles used with traditional kanbans. They are visual communication tools and are visible to all levels of employees within the organization. The difference is that instead of telling operators what to build next or what parts to retrieve, the cards tell improvement teams what pre-approved projects are most relevant to current business needs and are next in line for implementation. This approach is designed to complement and enhance the effectiveness of quality, lean, continuous improvement, and project management initiatives that may already be in place in an organization.
